Calls for proposals

The Recommendation “Upskilling Pathways: new opportunities for adults" aims to help adults acquire a minimum level of literacy, numeracy and digital skills and/or acquire a broader set of skills by progressing towards a higher qualification (depending on national contexts) through 'an upskilling pathway'. They may be in employment, unemployed or economically inactive, with a need to strengthen basic skills.

Successful applicants to the call for proposals will receive funding for activities that 

  • prepare the ground for the implementation of "Upskilling Pathways" (e.g. by taking stock of existing provision and identifying any gaps, by identifying priority groups, etc.) 
  • foster sustainable arrangements for its implementation (e.g. by supporting stakeholders to disseminate information, by capacity building, etc.).
